WowWee’s latest creation is a robotic dinosaur that can dance and chase its ball. Known as the MiPosaur, this robot features two wheels, a biting mouth, and a long tail that helps it balance using a mobile inverted pendulum (MIP) design created with the UCSD Coordinated Robotics Lab.

The MiPosaur’s main features relate to an included ball that it can chase, play with, or guard. Shaking the ball can also make the robot change it’s behavior. It can be even be controlled remotely using the BLE-enabled app, which is available for iOS and Android devices. Or you can pull the dino’s tail, and it will quickly turn around and chase you!

The MiPosaur is slated to go on sale in the third quarter of 2015, with a suggested retail price of $119.99.
